Offering a warm measure of holiday cheer to counteract the chilly Saturday weather, the North End Library hosted its annual Open House sponsored by the Friends Of The North End Library (FONEL) on December 7th.
The agenda featured a musical performance by the NEMPAC Children’s Chorus under the direction of Alexandra Dietrich with Valerie Osborn on piano and Nicholas Brown on clarinet. Following the second show, a sing-along took place with everyone in the audience encouraged to participate.
An Italian luncheon was provided by DePasquale Ventures with treats also from Parziale’s Bakery and the Golden Goose Market. A 50/50 raffle was held with proceeds going to support the needs of the library.
The Open House is one of several community-based initiatives hosted by the North End Library and FONEL, which have focused on providing a destination for more than just reading and computer usage with film festivals, workshops, guest lectures, and other programs designed to offer educational, entertaining and social opportunities.
While you’re here … we have a favor to ask.
Now in our 10th year, we are covering more community issues than ever before. We are thrilled that our readership has continued to grow rapidly. And unlike other news sites, we have decided to keep all our posts free and open to all. But, advertising doesn’t bring in enough to pay for reporting or editorial work. We do it because we believe community news is important – and we think you do too. If everyone who reads this site, who likes it, puts in a bit to pay for it, then our future would be much more secure.
